I just checked and it's in ``~ftp/pub/4.3" on ``ucbarpa.Berkeley.Edu". The
version currently there is dated April 21.

I had no problems compiling it under SunOS4.0. However, I haven't gotten the
various network programs such as ``ftp", ``rlogin", .... to work properly
with the nameserver. I tried moving 4.3BSD osurces over and after resolving
some problems with ``signal", I got everything compiled. However, only
``finger" appears to work correctly. ``Ftp" certainly doesn't. Anyone made
the modifications to 4.3BSD sources to get them to work properly with the
nameserver and SunOS4.0?
